The character was originally portrayed by Jerry G. Bishop when the show aired from 1970 to 1973. When the show returned in 1979, the role was taken over by Rich Koz, who plays the part to the present day. The show has been a long-running local TV program in the Chicago area, and has in recent years been seen nationally hosting the Saturday night movie on Me-TV.
